WASHINGTON, Oct. 16, 2023 – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Acting Under
Secretary for Rural Development Roger Glendenning today announced the Department is
partnering with eight Native Community Development Financial Institutions (NCDFIs) to
expand homeownership opportunities for Native Americans living on Tribal lands in eight states.
“Well-built, energy-efficient, affordable housing is essential to the vitality of communities in
